Updating game listings

Postby Campbell » Mon Feb 18, 2013 9:29 am

It occurred to me, after updating Jacaranda Jim at the weekend, that by doing so, it moved the game to the top of the list when sorting by date.

Do you think this is the right thing to do - i.e. when a game is updated it's date is reset, or should it retain the original release date?

I think it should retain its original release date, otherwise you'll get people updating their games simply to bump them to the top of the list.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking.

I agree with David on this one, the original date should remain.
